At the end of the inaugural function of Bengal Leads, little did the handful of industrialists who came there knew that soon they will have to face the music. Literally.
After finishing her speech, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee requested the industrialists to sing a song. May be to enliven the mood that was sagging after her 45-minute speech replete with statistics and rhetorics. "Ebaar ektu gaan hok (let there be some songs)," Mamata said to the fright of her party MPs and industrialists seated on the dais. "Sanjiv (Goenka), you deal in music. Can't you sing?" Mamata asked the RPG Enterprises chief. Then she turned to her MPs — Saugata Roy and Sudip Bandopadhyay — and said: "Saugatada please come and sing, Sudipda,you also come."' While Saugata Roy, vehemently shook his head, Sudip could not defy Didi and gently walked up to her holding the microphone.
